Kano Travel Guide: 9 reviews and 35 photos

Nigerias 2nd city with 10 milions people

A city that ´s offen is off the redord for tourists due to religous clashing and terrorism. A weird and scary experience going by car in the evening through this megacity that does´n have a single street light, nor traffic light. Only the private generators light up the small shops, Now and then you´ll t be stoppede at armed checking points.
An increadibly dirty city and pollutions from 1000s of motorbikes in the old market are is unbelievable - I was sneezing black particles and was smelling the pollution in my nose for hours after just 1 there. Still a very fascinating city!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Exotic, really out of the way, exciting very old market
  • Cons:Dirty, dangerous, milions of mosquitos everywhere
